Spirit: Riding Free is a CG-animated sequel/reimagining of Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. It stars the son of Spirit from the original, also named Spirit. The first season which consists of six 22-minute episodes will be available on Netflix on May 5th.

You can watch the teaser trailer, the full trailer, the crew featurette, and the cast featurette on YouTube. The music video, the cast music video, and the lyric video for the theme song "Riding Free" have been released as well. A Spanish/English rendition of the song has also been released.

you know, the switch to CGI doesn't bother as much as how they've completely thrown out the concept time period and characters of the original and turned it into a generic little girl horse show. :down: :down: :down:

Well, at least the animation looked nice. And Spirit did at least look as his old self. Surprised that DreamWorks didn't make a series about Spirit soon after it's release.

The first four seasons (26 episodes) of the show will be released on DVD on June 05, 2018. Seasons five to eight (26 episodes) will be released on DVD on September 24, 2019. Unfortunately, there will be no bonus features on the discs which means the shorts won't be included. You can watch a promo for the first DVD release, here.

DreamWorks Animation is making a theatrical movie based on the TV show. :shock: I never anticipated the show would be so popular to spawn a feature. Hopefully, the film will have higher production values and higher animation quality than the series. It's scheduled to be released on May 14, 2021.

Quote:
Here’s the full synopsis for the untitled film: "When headstrong Lucky Prescott is forced to move from her big city home to a small frontier town, she becomes a complete fish-out-of-water. But her life is changed forever when she makes new friends and forms an inseparable bond with a wild mustang named Spirit. When Spirit’s herd is captured by rustlers, the girls and their horses must undertake the adventure of a lifetime to save them."

Quote:
Elaine Bogan will direct (director, Tales of Arcadia: Trollhunters and 3 Below, Dragons: Race to the Edge) and Karen Foster (co-producer, How To Train Your Dragon) will produce. Ennio Torresan (head of story, Abominable and The Boss Baby) will serve as co-director.

Spirit Riding Free will be made with a lower-cost production model, similar to what DWA used for the production of 2017’s Captain Underpants ($38M production cost, $125.5M worldwide box office), thus working creatively with a partner studio.

When Universal acquired DreamWorks Animation in 2016, Universal Brand Development made a strategic investment to create a multi-platform ecosystem with the animation studio’s brands. Spirit Riding Free was one of the first exploited when the DWA consumer products program was launched stateside in 2017, tapping into young girls’ love for horses. The licensing program expanded beyond the toy and publishing aisles into home goods, apparel, accessories, party goods and consumables with partners such as Target, Walmart, and Amazon. Spirit became one of the first original IP TV series from a streaming platform to generate considerable consumer product revenue in the U.S. and overseas.

Could this also count as sequel to the original 2002 movie ?

It's more like a spin-off since the focus of the film is Spirit's son.

It turns out Spirit: Untamed is a remake of the TV series Spirit: Riding Free and not a continuation. I can't believe they took the time to redesign the characters only to make them look worse. :roll:

Poster, trailer, and TV spot.
